Mamelodi Sundowns attacker Kudakwashe Mahachi is set to join Orlando Pirates next season

Masandawana's on-loan attacker has reportedly been snapped up by the Sea Robbers for the 2018/2019 campaign

Mamelodi Sundowns attacker Kudakwashe Mahachi will reportedly join Orlando Pirates next season.

Mahachi who has failed to crack the nod at Chloorkop, has subsequently spent the last few seasons out on loan at Golden Arrows but will not return to KwaZulu-Natal or Tshwane at the end of the season. Rather reports suggest that he will link up with his new teammates in Johannesburg after a deal has been reportedly struck between his parent club Sundowns and the Buccaneers.

"Mahachi is going to Pirates next season. It is a done deal. Both clubs have agreed,” an Independent Media source said.

Reports further state that this deal is a direct result of Oupa Manyisa’s decision to move in the opposite direction at the beginning of the current campaign.

“He was part of Oupa Manyisa's deal. He won't be playing at Arrows or Sundowns come next season. Pirates has been after his services for a while now, " the source further revealed.

Nonetheless, the publication explain that they did attempt to gain clarity on the matter, but while Sundowns’ Spokesman Thulani Thuswa declined to comment, Pirates’ media officer Thandi Marafe was equally tight-lipped on the matter.

 "Our focus is on our last match against Free State Stars. We don't want to disrupt that. At this stage we will not be making any comments on the transfer matters until the window is opened, " Merafe stated.
